A very heavy and early cropper, defender yields are nearly twice that of other courgette varities. Courgettes are dense, mid-green and solid and have a noticably good flavour. The plants will produce courgettes over a long period of time especially if harvested regularly when courgettes are small. The open habit of this variety enables easy access to fruits. Bred to be resistant to Cucumber Mosaic virus, defender is one of the most reliable varieties of courgette.
